[SOLVED] linux-zen (+headers) 5.17.5zen1-2: VBox modules not found

Upgrading the zen kernel plus its headers to the latest in testing repo results in some error messages in my journal indicating the following:

May 07 08:59:28 arch-test systemd-modules-load[291]: Failed to find module 'vboxdrv'
May 07 08:59:28 arch-test systemd-modules-load[291]: Failed to find module 'vboxnetadp'
May 07 08:59:28 arch-test systemd-modules-load[291]: Failed to find module 'vboxnetflt'

The same thing with linux-lts.

And how did you install those modules?

Followed this at the time for the installation of Virtualbox:

And this package:

So did the modules build when you updated?

Thanks for asking the question!

Looks like a classic case of PEBCAK.

I missed this part of the output:

==> dkms install --no-depmod vboxhost/6.1.34_OSE -k 5.17.5-zen1-2-zen
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.17.5-zen1-2-zen (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/vboxhost/6.1.34_OSE/build/make.log for more information.
==> WARNING: `dkms install --no-depmod vboxhost/6.1.34_OSE -k 5.17.5-zen1-2-zen' exited 10

And of course in /var/lib/dkms/vboxhost/6.1.34_OSE/build/make.log:

warning: the compiler differs from the one used to build the kernel
  The kernel was built by: gcc (GCC) 12.1.0
  You are using:           gcc (GCC) 11.2.0

Should have known better: partial upgrade (facepalm).

Thanks again @Scimmia for asking the relevant questions pointing me to where I had gone wrong.

Upgrading fully to testing, the modules build successfully. Upon reboot, no issues, no entries in the journal.
